Yes, according to the Navigation Manual, you can copy the DVD for your own personal use providing you don't remove copyright notices and don't modify the data in any way. There are many DVD copying programs that are able to do this. I haven't checked, but it's probably not a DL sized DVD. If I were doing it, I'd make a disk image then burn from it.moddog said:Dose any one know if the nav dvd can be coped as a backup. If so is it a duel burn dvd ?
BTW dvddecrypter has been replaced by ImgBurn The Official ImgBurn WebsiteYeah you need a dual layer blank - they range from $5-$12 depending on where you buy ... use DVDDecrypter at Verisign Customer Parking Page - Security (SSL Certificates), Communications, Information Services, Network Security for proper dual-layer copies. Use the ISO-READ mode to read it, then turn around and use the ISO-WRITE mode to write it. Not all current burning software handles the dual layer copy issue correctly.

However I had no luck copying the older "B" version - the program got stuck while writing at about 51% (right after it was done with the 1-st layer.)
I tried TDK, yesterday went to (soon to become history) CompUsa and grabbed Sony. Will post the results.If you're using Memorex DL, try using the Verbatim DL--just might solve your problem.
Yep, I think going the ISO route is the way to go. This is a very old thread and I remember back then I bought a bunch of DVD DL +R which were VERY expensive at that time and even harder to find. Big mistake on my part. They just wouldn't work even though my burner was compatable with them. I had no problem using -R's.I made a few of them using power iso as in ripping to iso file or bin then burning with nero or roxio using DL Verbatim bought out of Wally World.
I have heard that just doing a DVD to DVD copy causes problems.
Perhaps one thing to keep in mind with using some DVD's is that some of the others are a tad too thick and will go into the machine but wont come out and get stuck, also wont spin. Verbatims are fine.
Salesman at stealership told me this.
Just came back from Jacksonville Chrysler - "F" is due in March 2008. I was also told, that the new navigation unit RER (2008 year model with HDD) is also made by Apline and uses the same DVD.Since this is a fresh post on the subject of the Nav system, I was wondering whether Alpine ever released a software version newer than the "AE?"
